Haslam suffers despair in Brands Hatch finale

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam missed out on the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship title after a weekend of problems in the 12th and final round at Brands Hatch in Kent.

“I’m not where I wanted to be on Sunday night after the race with a broken ankle and a broken wrist. It wasn’t my day. I had a few issues in race one today which dropped me back and I had to jump off at the end of the straight in race two.


“I’m absolutely devastated for the team and the effort that everyone’s put in. However, it’s been a good year and I’d like to thank everyone for all their hard work. The season has not ended how I wanted it to but I don’t think we could have done much more and it’s only made me more determined to come back stronger.


“I’ve got an operation in the morning to get the ankle sorted and thankfully the wrist is a clean break so that shouldn’t take too long to heal. We’ve got a bit of a plan for winter testing and the areas we want to work on to make sure we’re raring to go next year.”

Ends.
